Bilingualism in Florentine and Tuscan Works (ca. 1260 - ca. 1416)

Description
This project will undertake the first systematic investigation of the various literary documents that circulated simultaneously in more than one language in Tuscany, and especially Florence, between the mid-13th Century and the beginning of 15th Century. During that period, Florence was both a prominent literary centre in the vernacular, and home to a renewal of classical Latin eloquence. While both fields are well studied, their interaction remains largely unexplored. This research, at the convergence of several disciplines (literature, philology, linguistics and medieval history), has a strong pioneering character. It aims at changing the perception of medieval Italian culture and interpretation of the break between medieval Culture and Humanism. For this reason, the project will develop research in varying degrees of depth. First, it will provide the first catalogue of bilingual texts and manuscripts of medieval Tuscany. Organized as a database, this tool of analysis will stir innovative research in this field, some of which will be immediately promoted during the project. Secondly, two case studies, considered as important and methodologically exemplary, will be researched in detail, through the publication of two important set of texts, of secular and religious nature : 1. The vernacular translation of the Latin Epistles of Dante Alighieri; 2. A collection of polemical, historiographical, devotional and prophetical documents produced by the Tuscan dissident Franciscans in last decades of the 14th Century. Finally, the entire team, led by the PI, will be involved in the preparation of a synthesis volume on Tuscan culture in the fourteenth century viewed through bilingualism, entitled Cartography of bilingual culture in Fourteenth-Century Tuscany. From this general map of the Italian culture of the time, no literary genre nor field (be it religious or lay) shall be excluded.

Literary Communities and Literary Worlds

Description
What part does context play in the making of literary works and their meanings? What, precisely, do literary scholars mean when they speak of context? These two fundamental questions are at the heart of Literary Communities and Literary Worlds (LCLW), which seeks to answer these questions by addressing the careers of several literary exiles of the mid-twentieth century: Vladimir Nabokov, Stefan Heym, Richard Wright, and Peter Abrahams. Each of these authors was forced to move abroad mid-career, at a time of global conflict and intense migration not dissimilar to our own. Moreover, each sought to gain entry to a new literary culture. It is by studying their strategies of entry and integration that we are able to reveal the special importance of literary context, and, indeed, literary community in the shaping of works; and it is by focusing on border-crossing and belonging that we are able to advance current conceptions of the literary world, and, indeed, world literature, and thereby respond to the trans-national turn across the humanities, which has tended to stress dislocation and displacement over location and embeddedness. LCLW will ask: How are literary communities constituted? What are the conditions of entry, departure and belonging? And how important is literary practice, rather than physical presence, in determining membership? Its method is innovative in combining formal analysis with book history and the sociology of literature. It builds on the ER’s previous research experience, especially his work on the ‘literary field’, and will be greatly augmented through the supervision of Professor Nicholas Brown at the University of Illinois-Chicago, a leading expert in theorising the field; and of Dr Danielle Fuller at the University of Birmingham, , whose own work has advanced understandings of twentieth-century book history and communities of readership. A secondment at the George Padmore Institute will give the project an inter-sectoral dimension.

Developing Theatre: Building Expert Networks for Theatre in Emerging Countries after 1945

Description
This research project proposes a fundamental re-examination of the historiography of theatre in emerging countries after 1945 . It investigates the institutional factors that led to the emergence of professional theatre in the post-war period throughout the decolonizing world. The particular focus will be on the massive involvement of internationally coordinated ‘development’ and ‘modernization’ programs both East and West. The project will introduce the concepts of epistemic community, expert networks and techno-politics to theatre historical research as a means to historicize theatre within transnational and transcultural paradigms and examine its imbrication in globalization processes. This institutional and transnational approach will enable theatre studies to overcome its still strong national and local focus on plays and productions and connect it to current discourses on transnational history. The main objectives of this project are to: • examine how a global ‘epistemic community’ centred around theatre emerged in the post-war period; • investigate how ‘expert networks’ composed of government bodies, private foundations, transnational corporate philanthropy, local elites and individual artists sought to institutionalize particular forms and practices of professional theatre as an interconnected, transnational phenomenon; • develop a new interdisciplinary approach to theatre historiography by focusing on institutional structures, path dependencies and transnational imbrications rather than on works and authors. The principal investigator will bring to this project two decades of internationally recognized research into intercultural and global theatre. With its combination of institutional historiography and innovative research methods the project will provide a new foundation for current discussions of cultural policy and sustainability in emerging societies.

The Aesthetics of Applied Theatre

Description
The project aims to systematically explore an entire field of current forms of theatre, which despite its outstanding cultural and political significance has so far largely been ignored by theatre studies. Over the past two decades, notwithstanding intense competition from television and electronic media, theatre has been able to reassert and even reinforce its relevance in many different parts of the world and in widely diverse cultural fields (politics, business, social work, development aid, health care, and education). This renewed relevance originates not in traditional, experimental, or commercial theatre but rather among the many different types of applied theatre, which set in motion constructive social processes while upholding theatre’s aesthetic claim. Theatre with clear social, political, or economic aims is experiencing an unprecedented boom. The study will analyse this cross-cultural trend against the background of new theories of the aesthetics of performances and rehearsal processes. This theatre studies approach promises precise insights into the aesthetic forms of applied theatre, which constitute the (hitherto barely researched) foundation of its political effects. It will furthermore bring to light the ethical issues of applied theatre: intense aesthetic experiences – often linked with risks when it comes to performances – do not readily fit in with the claim to restore children, youngsters, patients, and other target groups to health, integrity, and self-confidence through theatrical practice. The project aims to show how aesthetic, political, and ethical aspects interact in the practice of applied theatre. Investigations will focus on carefully selected case studies in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, whose comparison will make it possible for the first time to capture the worldwide landscape of applied theatre in its full diversity, but also in its overarching structures and interrelations.

From Kurdistan to Europe: Kurdish Literary, Artistic and Cultural Activism by Kurdish Women Intellectuals

Description
Kurdish women have been involved in film production, radio broadcasts and exhibitions, as well as in the production of a substantial number of books, journals and other publications in both Kurdish and national languages of the European states. However, the aesthetic and intellectual production of Kurdish women, which leads to the empowerment of women and advancement of gender equality in the Kurdish diaspora, has not been the subject of any notable research yet. By going beyond stereotypical portrayals of Kurdish women, presented as either victim of honour-based violence or someone who suffers violent conflict, this research will deal with the gendered experiences of Kurdish diaspora from the four regions of Kurdistan (Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey) in terms of the growth of aesthetic, literary and cultural practices by migrant Kurdish women in five nation-states (Belgium, France, Sweden, Germany, UK) along with their impacts on larger societal debates within a comparative approach. It will also investigate the varying migrant incorporation regimes of selected European countries, including the impacts of the recent influx of Syrian Kurdish refugees. It includes ethnographic fieldwork, along with multi-sited research techniques carried out in the capitals of selected European states, data collection of both primary sources (creative, literary and cultural productions) and secondary sources (EU documents, annual progress reports, press releases). This study has a potential to encourage the maximization of networks of educational and intellectual revitalization in European states. It will also encourage other Kurdish migrant women to become factors of change and reach others. This is an interdisciplinary project aiming to fill in a significant gap in the relevant socio-political, gender, migration and cultural academic studies and policy debates within the European Research Area. It is in line with the EC’s strategy for gender equality provision.

Ladino Proverbs: Edition, Recovery and Dissemination of the Endangered Cultural Heritage in the post-Holocaust Yugoslavia

Description
This research project will constitute the first peremiological study of the Sephardic tradition from Serbia and Bosnia. Whereas other forms of the Ladino oral tradition from these countries such as ballads, songs or folktales have all been analysed, the proverb tradition remains largely unstudied. Thus my project seeks to fill a serious void in this field. I intend to edit and examine five manuscripts containing proverbs from these countries. All five manuscripts are postHolocaust. Three are exclusively in Ladino, whereas two are bilingual (Ladino/Serbian). The study will entail an analysis of the literary genre of the proverb from an interdisciplinary approach that will include contributions from biblical studies, medieval Iberian cultural studies, modern Balkan history, sociological criticism, linguistics, and folklore paremiology and narrative. The study will also include a cross-cultural analysis of the proverbs using a comparative method. The ultimate goal of this project is a monograph intended to preserve, revitalise and disseminate the endangered Ladino language and culture. Prof. Paloma Díaz-Mas, who works in the Instituto de Lengua, Literatura and Antroplogía (ILLA) of the Centre for Human and Social Sciencies (CSIC, Spain) is the ideal person to supervise my work. She leads a research group that focuses on the culture of post-diaspora of Hispanic Jews (Sephardim) and has an extensive and prominent list of works on the topic published either independetly or in collaboration with other members of the project. By joining her group I would be given the opportunity to [the] acquire new skills (transliteration of Ladino texts written in Hebrew script[s]; edition of texts) and disseminate my work among both academic and non-academic audience through a number of activities (international conferences, workshops and seminars; radio and television programmes; participation in Science weeks and fairs,organisation of exhibitions and promotional talks).

The values of French language and literature in the European Middle Ages

Description
Two questions about linguistic identity lie at the heart of this project. What is the relation historically between language and identity in Europe? How are cognate languages demarcated from each other? Normative models of national languages helped shape Europe. Yet they did not become hegemonic until the 19th century. Indeed, they were imposed (not always successfully) on a linguistic map of Europe more fluid and complex than most histories of national languages allow. In the Middle Ages multilingualism was common, as was the use of non-local languages, notably Latin, but also French. This project undertakes a revaluation of the nature and value of the use of French in Europe during a crucial period, 1100-1450, less in terms of its cultural prestige (the traditional focus of scholarship) than of its role as a supralocal, transnational language, particularly in Western Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. The project fosters collaboration between, and cuts across, different intellectual and national scholarly traditions, drawing on expertise in codicology, critical theory, linguistics, literature, and philology; it involves scholars from a range of European countries and North America, entailing empirical research around a complex and widely disseminated textual tradition vital to medieval understandings of European history and identity, L’Histoire ancienne jusqu’à César. This case study will ground and stimulate broader speculative reflection on the two core questions concerning linguistic identity. While the project builds on prior critiques of the construction of, and investment in, national languages and literary traditions, it has a broad historical scope, and will offer an innovative, genuinely international perspective, in terms of both its object of study and method. Indeed, its final aim, through and beyond its consideration of French as a lingua franca, is to interrogate that language’s role in the emergence of a European identity in the Middle Ages.

Traces of contact: Language contact studies and historical linguistics

Description
This project aims to establish criteria by which results from language contact studies can be used to strengthen the field of historical linguistics. It does so by applying the scenario model for language contact studies to a number of concrete settings, which differ widely in their level of aggregation and dime depth: the languages of the Amazonian fringe in South America, the complex multilingual setting of the Republic of Suriname, the multilingual interaction of immigrant groups in the Netherlands, and two groups of multilingual individuals. New methods from structural phylogenetics are employed, and the same linguistic variables (TMA and evidentiality marking, argument realization) will be studied in the various projects. In the various projects, use will be made from a shared questionnaire, so that comparable data can be gathered. By applying the scenaio model at various levels of aggregation, a more principled link between language contact studies and historical linguistics can be established.

Yugoslavia Revisited: Post-Yugoslav Literature and Art as Curators of the Socialist Past

Description
This interdisciplinary project aims to investigate how post-Yugoslav literature and art remembers the heydays of socialist Yugoslavia (1950s-1970s) and how these acts of remembrance critically intervene in the public sphere. Focusing on a number of selected cases from prose fiction, film, visual art and performance/theater, the project will not only scrutinize how the arts ‘archive’, ‘document’ or ‘recall’ the everyday life and memory of socialist Yugoslavia, but also examine how critical cultural practices and the memories they mediate help envision a better future and open up new avenues to cosmopolitanism. Utilizing a dynamic understanding of cultural memory as a performative engagement with the past, this project will center on the following questions: (1) How do post-Yugoslav artistic practices act as curators of the socialist past in opposition to the dominant ideologies of nationalism and neoliberalism? (2) How does post-Yugoslav literature and art acknowledge the mediated character of memory? (3) How do the ways in which the arts shape and circulate the cultural memory of Yugoslavia help transcend national and ethnic boundaries and imagine new forms of solidarity? (4) How do literature and art deal with the issue of Europe and transnational identity, and how is this reflected in their reception? The cultural memory of the multinational socialist Yugoslavia, of its utopian potential as well as of its violent breakdown, has broad repercussions that strongly resonates with the endeavor of the European Union to create a shared European identity based on a common understanding of the (European) past. By providing an analysis of post-Yugoslav artistic practices of cultural remembering, the project will produce new knowledge on this specific case, provide a theoretical contribution to cultural memory studies, and contribute to broader current debates on a common European cultural memory and transnational identity.
